    New Londo Ruins

    Post by Akatik on Mon Jan 23, 2012 11:40 am

    I'm still in the middle of my first playthrough. Another game distracted me for about a month and I'm coming back to Dark Souls to finish and possibly 100% the game.

    I'm SL 71 and I'm at the part of the game where I need to get the lord souls. I first went to Demon Ruins/Lost Izalith. Now, I need to decide where to go next. I'm thinking of going to the New Londo Ruins because I still want to level up my Gravelord covenant and I don't really feel like messing around with curse status in Dukes/Crystal cave.

    So, you can only damage Ghosts in the ruins when you're cursed or are using the transient curse item..right? But you still can't block? My Cleric turned into a Black Iron wearing, great sword swinging, great shield bashing behemoth. I'm a little concerned about not being able to block, do I just poke the ghosts at range? I can probably take a few more hits than most other characters due to my current tank build.

    What's the best tactic to use against these ghosts? Dodge and poke, or just run through?

    pretty sure you can block against ghosts when using the transient curses. best way to get the curses is probably from the ghosts, so get as much item discovery as possible and farm a few. if you need any more that is.

    You can block the ghosts? Well, I must of gotten the wrong information. That changes everything.

    With the transient curse item u can hit the ghosts, also a GS will own them at 70+ so your good to go swinging. Just keep your curse item in your little window so when it stops being greyed out you can reuse it.

    You can definately block the ghosts with transient curse and you can find 3 which will get you to the rooftop to purchase more. As for your sword - it needs to be the cursed version to hit ghosts, or a jagged ghost blade will work

    i can confirm that too, you can block

    perhaps there is some confusion with a move that the ghosts do, when they extend their arms around you... i think this is not blockable because they slash you from behind... NOT sure though!

    Wait, I thought that the only way you can hit/block the ghosts is when you are cursed. You don't really need a cursed weapon to do so.

    But using a ghost blade will allow you to hit the ghosts but not be able to block them when you're not cursed.
